I recently built a new rig to play since my old one struggled. I have Vista 64bit (Home Premium unfortunately, so no changing to 32 bit with ultimate) and the game will not run, not fully anyway.

The game starts and patched just fine, but when I click play, it goes to a black screen with sound (let me finish before you reply...) and then it goes to the scenery of the char selection screen. No login screen, and no text showing.

I have googled the hell out this, and checked the AOC forums to no avail.

I know this was a problem with beta, and I have tried the disable full screen and changing the res in the vid settings; and I have also gone into the text file to change the shader settings, but nothing has worked.

Anyone out there running this in 64bit, and if so, how did you get it to work? Or, does anyone know how to fix this?

Here is my setup: (Flame all you want, but at least provide a suggestion for a fix)


DFI LANPARTY DK 790FX-M2RS AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Windsor 3.2GHz Socket AM2 125WProcessor

8G G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)

Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W SLI Ready-ATX12V V2.01 Power Supply

Pioneer 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black SATA Model DVR-215DBK - OEM

Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit English

I currently have an 8800GT in but I have two HD 3870s in the mail to run in crossfire.


Sidenote: I have not tried to reinstall as I will be reformatting once I get the new vid cards just to start fresh with ATI.

Thanks for your help!

runs fine for me on vista 64bit ultimate.

4gigs of DDR
FX60
Nvidia 8800GT x2 SLi
Asus A8N32-SLi Deluxe

I just reformatted 2 times both vista 64bit because of a hd failure and both times had 0 problems with the game. My "process" for installing was simple:

Install Windows Vista.
Turn off WHQL Verification
Install Updates
Install Spybot, CCLeaner and Avast Antivirus.
Install latest Nforce 4 x16 AMD Drivers
Install latest Geforce Drivers
Install conan and patch
defrag

Have yet to have a problem, actually even in beta I ran the client fine. Albiet it ran like ****, it still would run. /shrug sorry with out more details on your system besides just the hardware there is no way to tell. It could be malware, driver issues, curropted install no idea.

One thing I would try before reinstalling your OS though is download Driver Cleaner, remove drivers, reboot into safemode and use driver cleaner to remove any reg entries or **** like that and then reinstall latest ATI drivers?

I will try that. I have the driver cleaner already. It may just be an issue with the motherboard/vid card incompatibility. I really don't know. I am sure I will get it figured out trying the methods suggested.

Thanks for your help guys.

I use 64 bit Vista and don't have any troubles with it.

Was supposed to be Ultimate but it says Business when I boot...
